Notes & Reviews:
John Neschling has no equal in this repertoire... in the same piece, Villa-Lobos slides from elevated invention towards banality - Neschling makes it hang together, and the kinetic vivacity of the orchestral playing is mesmerizing.
The vividness of the orchestration and the vitality of the rhythms are wonderfully conveyed by John Neschling's performances with the São Paulo Symphony, and the disc ends with a sumptuous account of the most ambitious pieces in the series, Choros No 12, which represents Villa-Lobos at his most inspiringly discursive and eclectic, as Stravinskian modernism rubs shoulders with folk-inspired melodic writing.
